OUR DELIVERY PROMISE

Our mail order meat service delivers to any UK mainland* address using external couriers from Tuesday to Saturday. Deliveries can be tracked and re-arranged via a text message update service, kept safe in specially designed packaging that keeps a constant temperature for up to 48 hours.

We’re passionate about how we source, age and prepare our meat – so we want to ensure it reaches you exactly how it left us; always fresh and never frozen.

We cut each order individually, and vacuum pack on the morning that the boxes are packed for delivery to protect during transit. We’ve found that this is the best way to ensure that your freshly cut meat arrives with you in perfect condition. If you’d rather have your meat wrapped in butcher’s paper, we can do that too – just let us know in your order notes.

Recipe

Beef Wellington

Ingredients

1 kilo fillet steak
3 tbsp oil
250g mushrooms
50g butter
1 large sprig fresh thyme

100ml dry white wine
20 slices streaky bacon
500g/1lb 2oz pack puff pastry (thawed if frozen)
flour for dusting
2 eggs beaten

Method

  1. Heat oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Season the fillet all over and seal in a hot pan all over then roast for 10 mins for medium-rare or 12 mins for medium. When the beef is cooked to your liking, remove from the oven to cool, then chill in the fridge for about 15 mins.
  2. While the beef is cooling, chop the mushrooms as finely as possible so they have the texture of coarse breadcrumbs.
  3. Heat 2 tbsp of the oil and all the butter in a large pan and fry the mushrooms on a medium heat, with the thyme sprig, for about 10 mins stirring often, until you have a softened mixture. Season the mushroom mixture, pour over the wine and cook for about 10 mins until all the wine has been absorbed. The mixture should hold its shape when stirred. Remove the mushroom duxelle from the pan to cool and discard the thyme.
  4. Overlap two pieces of cling film over a large chopping board. Lay the bacon on the cling film, slightly overlapping, in rows. Spread half the mushroom mix over the bacon, then sit the fillet on it and spread the remaining mushroom mix over. Use the cling film's edges to draw the bacon around the fillet, then roll it into a sausage shape, twisting the ends of cling film to tighten it as you go. Chill the fillet while you roll out the pastry.
  5. Roll out a third of the pastry to a 18 x 30cm strip and place on a non-stick baking sheet. Roll out the remaining pastry to about 28 x 36cm. Unravel the fillet from the cling film and sit it in the centre of the smaller strip of pastry and brush the pastry's edges, and the top and sides of the wrapped fillet, with beaten egg. Using a rolling pin, carefully lift and drape the larger piece of pastry over the fillet, pressing well into the sides. Trim the joins to about a 4cm rim. Seal the rim with the edge of a fork or spoon handle. Glaze all over with more egg yolk and, using the back of a knife, mark the beef Wellington with long diagonal lines taking care not to cut into the pastry. Chill for at least 30 mins and up to 24 hrs.
  6. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Brush the Wellington with a little more egg and cook until golden and crisp - 20 mins for medium-rare beef, 25 mins for medium. Allow to stand for 10 mins before serving in thick slices.
